Under the project, the team at Altoros had to address the following issues: 1. As any iOS/Android device could connect to the picture kiosks via Wi-Fi, it was important to secure the network from malicious activity. 2. Running 100,000 picture kiosks was resource-intensive in terms of electricity, Wi-Fi costs, etc. As such, it was crucial to minimize resource utilization. 3. On-site maintenance of kiosks scattered worldwide required the availability of professionals, who sometimes had to travel long distances. This made the whole endeavor time-consuming and inefficient, especially when it came to smallest changes or configurations.


1. Our .NET engineers conducted a detailed analysis, prioritizing tasks and crafting an implementation roadmap for PoC features. 2. MAC filtering enhanced security by creating white/blacklists for MAC addresses, effectively blocking suspicious devices. 3. Kiosks now create on-demand Wi-Fi hotspots, conserving resources by auto-disabling. Configurable to accept single or multiple connections. 4. A user-friendly GUI streamlined remote desktop configuration of kiosks, ensuring efficient management. 5. To avert conflicts, each kiosk received unique IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, netmasks, and network names. 6. A detailed report documented limitations, solutions, and implemented functionalities, providing a comprehensive project overview.


Partnering with Altoros, the customer validated whether 100,000 picture kiosks could be updated to a new operating system. With a proof of concept delivered in 12 weeks, the company identified crucial limitations, worked out a mitigation strategy, and prioritized features to implement before a full-scale migration. The security measures in place enabled the provider to prevent unauthorized connections, block suspicious devices, etc. Now, it is also possible to remotely maintain the picture kiosks.
